Idiot in Hornsby

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by hewy, Dec 23, 2006.

  1. So here I am sitting on my veranda sipping on some of the delicious golden fluid when I notice a GSXR riding by...

    This is no ordinary GSXR, it's rider is equipped with the latest in safety gear, shorts and a singlet. Oh and it looks like he has just done his Christmas shopping...

    Sitting IN FRONT of the rider is a bag... in the said bag is a boogie board! :shock:

    WTF? I have never seen anything quite as ridiculous before in all my life...

  2. You should have called the police and had them arrest that scoundrel.

    :cool:

  3. Obviously what he was intending to do was ride down to Manly beach at top speed then do a stoppie at the edge of the sand. As he gets flipped off the bike he'll grab the bag, pull the boogie board out in mid-air then land in the surf on his board. If he's calculated the angle of impact correctly (which of course he has, because this guy is clearly a genius), then the force of being thrown from the bike will enable him to skip like a stone over the waves. Once he loses enough momentum he can turn around and ride back in on the boogie board.

  4. How do you know there's a boogie board in that bag? Maybe he's just transporting drugs to Bali.

    If so, the soft, cushioning effect of Marijuana will provide him ample protection against gravel rash.

  9. I don't get the whole no jacket thing.

    I was moving my bike from the pits to the lanes at Willowbank Raceway yesterday, doing about twenty k's with no jacket, gloves or helmet on. It was bloody cold and windy. I couldn't think to go no jacket on the road. Shopping requires a cage, simple as that.

    Mind you, if he's been topless then I'd say he's an idiot. Sunburn's one thing but board rash sucks big time. :cool: :LOL:
